    Leaving a Trace: On Keeping a Journal
    Alexandra Johnson
    Some notes from the reading:
    • “Hoard moments that can be held in the hand and examined later, like found stones.”
    • “Think of a room you’ve known well over three stages in life. How did it, and you, changed over time?”
    • “Break the deadlock of introspective obsession.”
    • How to silence their censor: “That dark, icy whisper of the confidence thief”
    • Unearth interior life
    • find images that reveal significant motivations
    • Investigates essential patterns; disclosing what has been left out of; charting periods of great intensity; connecting the dots between events and influences to develop a true narrative.
